BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

"From the age of uniform, from the age of 
solitude, from the age of Big Brother, 
from the age of doublethink - Greetings!" 

Nineteen Eighty-Four 
Geoge Orwell 

In 1949 George Orwell wrote an essay titled "1984" in which he described an unfortunate 
world governed by an impersonal and manipulative bureaucracy. Your Board of Selectmen 
are pleased to report that Orwell's world did not come to pass. In fact, 1984 was a 
year in which freedom and democracy flourished, elections were held for both 
Presidential and local offices, Town Meetings decided the future of the town, and first 
amendment rights were debated. This message describes the real world of 1984. 

The Town of Wilmington voted in March for Senator Gary Hart in the Presidential 
Primary. In November, President Reagan topped former Vice President Mondale by 1,718 
votes. Raymond Shamie won in Wilmington, but lost to John Kerry in his U.S. Senatorial 
bid. Congressman Edward J. Markey was returned to his seat as was State Senator Robert 
C. Buell. James R. Miceli and Geoffrey C. Beckwith were elected to represent Wilmington 
in the Massachusetts General Court. Incumbents won the local election, with James C. 
Stewart and Rocco V. DePasquale being reelected to the Board of Selectmen. Briget Zukas 
and Philip A. Fenton, Sr. won reelection to the Board of Selectmen. 

During 1984, there were several noteworthy personnel changes, Tax Collector Marion 
Murphy was appointed the Town's Col lector /Treasurer. Paul Fleming of Plymouth was 
appointed as the new principal of Wilmington High School. Kenneth Dorrance served 
briefly as Executive Director of the Wilmington Housing Authority, to be succeeded by 
Lillian Buckley. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carol Sager submitted her resignation 
effective with the end of the school year. Richard V. Barry, former Finance Committee 
Member and Chairman of the Board of Library Trustees, died early in the year, and former 
Athletic Director and Recreation Director Larry Cushing died in July 

Wilmington High School figured prominently in the news. The Annual Town Meeting passed 
a bond issue of $6.5 million to finance extensive renovations and additions to the 
educational facility. The school also received a renewal of its accreditation. An oil 
leak was discovered in the underground tanks at the High School in April. Clean-up work 
continued until nearly the opening of school in the fall, with costs reaching $400,000. 
Representative James R. Miceli secured a $400,000 state grant to assist in resolving the 
problem. The Shawsheen School septic system drew attention, and two old schools were 
torn down, the Mildred Rogers at Silver Lake, and the former Center School, which once 
had been the High School. 

The former Glen Road School became the new Town Hall in June. The former Town Hall and 
former Whitefield School were both closed. 

A Special Town Meeting was called for May 21, to consider a rezoning proposal which 
would allow the building of an ice arena. The proposal passed. Work began, but was 
stopped pending environmental review. In September, restoration of wetlands was ordered 
on the ice area site. Revised plans for the arena were discussed at a special meeting 
with the Board of Selectmen. In December, the arena proposal still figured prominently 
in the news with debate over conditions for construction. 1984 reached its end without 
the matter being resolved. 



2 



A matter which was resolved was the location of the new Senior Citizens' 
Drop-in-Center. The Council on Aging received an eviction notice for the old center at 
Wilmington Plaza. A Special Town Meeting voted an appropriation of $11,000 for 
renovation of the Buzzell School for a center. A new roof was installed on the Buzzell 
School, donated by Carpenters Union Locals 41 and 158. 

Water supply to Tewksbury; Reading Municipal Light power charges; construction of family 
housing units; and plans for new subdivisions figured in the year's news. Hearings were 
held on the reconstruction of the Lake Street Bridge including modifications of the Lake 
Street-Grove Avenue intersection. The bridges on Lake Street, Eames Street and Butters 
Row were closed due to extensive damage caused by an overloaded freight train. 

Wilmington came to national attention when the New England Campaign to Stop Euromissles 
protested MX missle defense work being done at Avco. The vigorous School Committee 
policy on drugs and alcohol also drew state and national attention. 

It is customary for the Board of Selectmen to express their appreciation to all Town 
Boards, Commissions, and Committees, as well as those appointed and elected officials. 
The Board expresses its appreciation for the many hours that these groups and 
individuals have given to the Town of Wilmington. 



The Selectmen do not share George Orwell's dire predictions for 1984. In fact, 1984 
will be remembered for being an up-beat and progressive year for the Town.

Tow \ of Wilmington 



MASSACHUSETTS 01887 



<[> COOI 6 
S5S-33" 



The Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

The town meeting form of government has been in existence in the Town of Wilmington for 
254 years. This achievment cannot go unnoticed without a quote by that keen observer of 
the early American political scene, Alexis DeTocqueville. In "Democracy in America", he 
wrote: "The township, taken as a whole and in relation to the central government is 
only an individual. Municipal independence in the United States is, therefore, a 
natural consequence of this very principle of sovereignty of the people. All the 
American republics recognize it, more or less, but circumstances have particularly 
favored its growth in New England." Yes, it has grown in New England and the acorn that 
was planted 254 years ago is now a strong oak upon which the fortress of our town 
meeting form of government is buttressed. 

1984 witnessed three expressions known as the "New England town meeting". The Annual 
Town Meeting in April voted the appropriations for the municipal and school departments, 
as well as deciding various questions of policy for the community. The second town 
meeting held in May was called to rezone a parcel of land on Main Street at Route 129 in 
order to provide the Town with an ice arena. The third town meeting held in September 
had to do with the transfer and/or raising of funds to supplement the town budget and 
various questions concerning low and moderate scattered site housing in the community. 

The town government undertook several new initiatives which are noteworthy. The first 
is that the Town Hall was moved from the former Baptist Church located on Middlesex 
Avenue across from the Wilmington Congregational Church. The building had been used as 
a Town Hall since 1876, and Town offices since the late 1940 's. In the many years that 
the town offices were located there, they had grown to the point where a new facility 
had to be found. The Glen Road School, closed for five years, was chosen for the new 
Town Hall. The necessary renovations and modifications to the school were made and the 
town offices were relocated to this new site in June. The former Town Hall and former 
Whitefield School (Town Hall Annex) are now standing idle waiting for their eventual 
reuse. The town undertook to raze several buildings during the year; the Mildred Rogers 
School, at Silver Lake Beach, and the Center School, a former town high school, were 
both demolished to make way for recreational uses of the land they were occupying. The 
Daniel T. Buzzell School was transferred to the use of the Council on Aging to be 
pressed into service, after renovation, as the Senior Citizens Drop-in Center. This 
one-story stately building is uniquely suited to serve the needs of the elderly in our 
community. The High School Renovation and Addition Project got under way in a positive 
direction: first, by a vote at the Annual Town Meeting to exempt the bonded indebtedness 
from the provisions of Proposition 2 1/2; and second, to vote the funds necessary to 
raise a $6.5 million bond issue; thirdly, the contract was signed between the Town and 
the Design Partnership of Cambridge to undertake the architectural and engineering 
services for the renovation and addition project. The town meeting in September voted 
to name the new gymnasium at the Wilmington High School in honor of Lawrence H. Cushing, 
Sr., a former athletic director and recreation director in the town. 

In the fall, the Town honored Robert W. Parent, a serviceman killed in Vietnam, by 
placing a monument in his honor in front of the former Town Hall on Middlesex Avenue. 
In May the Town became aware of an environmental emergency at the Wilmington High 
School. The underground oil tanks were found to be leaking and a cleanup operation was 
started immediately to stop the environmental threat which it posed to the underground 
aquifers and the headwaters of the Ipswich River. The cleanup operation cost 
approximately $400,000. Representative James R. Miceli was able to secure a $400,000. 
grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality 
Engineering to provide the community with the financial resources to pay for the 
catastrophe. Without his efforts, the Town would have had to borrow the money and, 
therefore, have an immediately effect on the tax rate. In addition, the sum of $100,000 
was appropriated for the replacement of two oil tanks at the High School 



and Representative Miceli was again able to obtain a grant of $75,000 to pay for that 
project. The needs of the handicapped of the community were being addressed by the 
formation of a handicapped affairs committee, which adopted as their motto "A. I.M. - 
Access is Mandatory". The committee was formulated during the year and selected 
Laurence W. Curtis as its chairman. 

During the year, the Water § Sewer Commissioners spent a considerable amount of time 
planning for a new water treatment plant to be located in North Wilmington. The 
engineering firm of Weston $ Sampson was retained to do the necessary engineering on the 
proposed facility. In addition, the sewer department was faced with major changes 
concerning the Metropolitan District Commission Sewer Division, which was replaced by a 
new entity titled "Metropolitan Water Resource Authority". The task of this new 
authority is to provide a better quality waste water treatment for the metropolitan 
Boston area in order to prevent further contamination of Boston Harbor. The Town's 
Public Works Economic Development grant of $807,000 for the improvement of Ballardvale 
Street was placed on "hold" pending the final outcome of the state -required 
environmental impact report. The environmental impact report was favorably received, 
and a contractor was selected from a number of bidders with construction to begin in 
early 1985. 

At the Annual Town Meeting, the voters approved Chapter 41, Section 97A, known as the 
"strong police chief's law". This provided the police chief with a further definition 
of his authority and responsibility, vis-a-vis the Wilmington Town Manager Act. At the 
Annual Town Meeting, the voters also approved the funding for a computer system for the 
financial accounting and management information needs of the town government. The Town 
Manager and several key department heads were involved in a six-month long process of 
reviewing the data processing needs of the town and the evaluation of several hardware 
and software vendors. Proposals were evaluated, analyzed, and the field narrowed to two 
proposals to be further scrutinized. 

The fall Special Town Meeting authorized the Board of Selectmen to convey 11 parcels of 
land to the Wilmington Housing Authority for scattered site low and moderate income 
housing. In addition, the Town also voted to allow the Selectmen to raise approximately 
$144,000 to supplement the Wilmington Housing Authority's state grant to fund the 
construction of these scattered site single family homes in various locations in the 
community. 

The Board of Selectmen voted once again to classify the tax rate. The residential rate 
was set at $19.09, which was an $.86 reduction from last year's rate ($19.95). The 
commercial, industrial and personal property rate was maintained at the last year level 
of $24.68. The town's total valuation was increased from $581,506,000 to $631,329,000. 
due to the increase in residential and industrial development in the community. The 
town also maintained its Aa bond rating by the Moody's Investors Service. This bond 
rating was necessary in order to sell $6.5 million in bonds for the high school 
renovation project. The bond sale took place in December and the Town received a very 
favorable interest rate of 7.991 for the ten-year bond. During the year, the Town 
Accountant has converted the Town's municipal bookkeeping system to the state-mandated 
Unified Municipal Accounting System, better known as UMAS, in order to provide a more 
uniform accounting and reporting of municipal funds. 



I wish to express my appreciation to my associates in the official town family, the 
Board of Selectmen, department heads and town employees for their whole-hearted 
cooperation and assistance over the past year. To the residents of Wilmington, I extend 
my gratitude for their understanding during our move from the former town hall into the 
new Town Hall on Glen Road. I urge you to exercise your democratic right and vote at 
the Annual Town Election on April 20th, and the Annual Town Meeting on April 27th. It 
is our duty as voters in New England to continue the tradition that has grown here for 
these two hundred and fifty-four years and to insure that municipal independence is, in 
fact, the natural consequence of sovereignty of the people. 



Respectfully submitted, 




Reginald S. Stapc^

Town Engineer 



I hereby submit the Annual Report for the Engineering Department for the year 1984. 
Evaluation of Work Load 

An examination of the work load for the Engineering Department reveals that we spent our time this year as 
follows: 151 Highway Department, construction projects; 10% Water and Sewer Board, construction projects; 
20% Planning Board, subdivisions; 20% Town Clerk; 15% town-wide and future projects; 10% Town Manager and 
Selectmen; 10% all others. 

In-House Procedures 

The up-dating of Assessors' maps continues to be a problem which requires a large part of our time. Current 
up-dated Assessors' maps are a valuable tool for the town's citizens and other town departments, boards and 
commissions. 

Projects for the Year 

The department provided inspections for five current subdivisions, 45 streets being constructed with 
variances from the Official Map, and 25 projects approved under site plan review. 

Conclusion 

The department continues to adjust time and resource priorities to better serve town-wide interest. 



Permanent Building Committee 



On April 21, 1984, the townspeople voted to exempt from Proposition 2 1/2 a 6.5 million dollar bond issue to 
renovate Wilmington High School. 

Having received approval from the Town on May 1st -- at the Annual Town Meeting on a vote of 651 to 28 to 
bond for the project, the Permanent Building Committee signed a contract with the architectural firm of 
Design Partnership of Cambridge on September 4, 1984 for a fee of $393,000 to prepare the necessary plans and 
specifications. 

From September to December the Permanent Building Committee met twice a month with the architect to complete 
the final design aspect of the renovations and additions. In that regard, input was received from the School 
Committee, School Administration and various town boards for approval. 

As in the past, it is the intent of this committee to get involvement from all town boards in order to have 
the project move forward expeditiously. 

Bids are anticipated to be received in April, 1985 with construction to begin about June 1st. The project 
will take approximately 1 1/2 years to complete.

Police Department 



The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, complaints and incidents reported 
during 1984; and, for the most part the corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police 
Department. During 1984 the total number of complaints, and incidents reported to the Police Department 
decreased by 496 complaints from 11,462 in 1983 to 10,966 during 1984. For the most part this decrease is 
spread throughout the various classifications for crimes and complaints. The major crime categories showing 
an increase were stolen motor vehicles which increased by 27% from 67 in 1983 to 85 during 1984; assault and 
battery complaints overall increased by only two complaints; however, the more serious assault and battery 
complaints increased significantly; A § B by firearms increased from 1 to 4 and A § B by knife increased 
from 1 to 6; Larceny complaints increased by 9% from 367 in 1983 to 399 in 1984. Other small increases were 
recorded in Breaking and Entering which increased by 6 incidents and Robberies which increased by 2 
incidents. 

Motor vehicle accidents again, continues to be a serious community problem. The total number of accidents 
increased by 154 from 1,176 in 1983 to 1,330 during 1984. This is a very significant increase in light of 
the departments traffic enforcement efforts during 1984. The total number of motor vehicle violations cited 
during 1984 increased by 35% from 2,065 in 1983 to 2,788 during 1984. This follows a 98% increase during 
1983. For the most part this increase is spread throughout the various types of motor vehicle violations. 
Major areas of increase were: operators license violations 45%, Miscellaneous violations 38%, speeding 
violations 33%, (this follows a 222% increase during 1983); and, operating under the influence of liquor 
increased by 20%. For the most part these increases are attributed to selective enforcement of speeding and 
operating under violations. Due to the seriousness of this problem, the Police Department will continue our 
stepped-up enforcement in this area. In addition to enforcement efforts the department plans to implement 
during 1985 a broader highway safety education program - one which goes beyond our present school safety 
program to include the general public. It is our hope that a greater public awareness of the cause of 
accidents, and defensive driving techniques will help reduce the number of accidents, especially those 
involving serious personal injury or death. 

Arrests for crimes other than motor vehicle increased by 40% from 393 in 1983 to 552 during 1984. Increases 
of major interest were: Liquor law violations which increased by 125% from 28 arrests during 1983 to 63 in 
1984; and, arrests for narcotic laws violations increased by 55% from 65 in 1983 to 101 during 1984. For 
the most part these increases resulted from the special assignment of officers to concentrate on these 
special problems. 

The department makes note of some personnel changes and accomplishments during 1984. Three additional 
officers were, appointed to the police department, they were: Stephen Mauriello, James White and Jon 
Shepard. Officers Maureen Matarese LeGrand, James Peterson and Stephen Mauriello completed their basic 
police training. A special congratulations is in order for Sgt. Robert Vassallo who during 1984 received 
his law degree from the New England School of Law; and passed the Massachusetts Bar exam. 

In closing this report I want to thank the Town Manager, the Board of Selectmen, all other boards and 
committees, department heads and their workers for their support and cooperation during 1984. A note of 
thanks is also due Representative James Miceli and Senator Robert Buell for their assistance in securing 
funding for the Regional In-Service Training Institute and for several legislative bills which they 
supported and that will assist us in providing better law enforcement and public safety services. A special 
note of thanks to the staff and members of the Wilmington Police Department, for without their support and 
continuing efforts none of our accomplishments could have been realized.

Planning Board 



The Wilmington Planning Board consists of five volunteer members appointed by the Town Manager. In 1984, 
the Board welcomed two new members, Michael V. McCoy, who joined them in February and Ronald C. Coutu who 
filled the vacancy left by Albert F. Reidy, Jr. who resigned in September. 

In June, the Planning Board was joined with all the town offices at the Town Hall's new location at 121 Glen 
Road where the Planning Board continues to hold its weekly Tuesday evening meetings that are always open to 
the public. During the day, the Planning Coordinator is available to assist the public Monday through 
Thursday. 

SUBDIVISION CONTROL: 

Subdivision activity continued to increase throughout 1985. As one of its major functions, the Planning 
Board reviewed the following subdivision plans: 

Forty-three Plans Believed Not to Require Approval were submitted; the Planning Board found that 40 plans 
did not require approval under the Subdivision Control Law and therefore were endorsed; and 3 plans were 
found to require approval and therefore were denied for cause. 

The Board collected a total of $8,046.44 in filing fees from the filing of the following new subdivisions: 

Ox Pasture Preliminary Subdivision Plan - A proposed eighteen lot subdivision off Woburn Street was 
approved with conditions. 

Middlesex Pines Section II Definitive Subdivision Plan - A thirteen lot subdivision off Middlesex 
Avenue was approved with conditions. 

Blanchard Road Modification of Definitive Subdivision Plan - Changing a nine lot subdivision off 
Aldrich Road to a ten lot subdivision. 

Quarry Hill Preliminary Subdivision Plan - A seven lot subdivision off Swain Road was approved with 
conditions. 

Oakland Park Section I Definitive Subdivision Plan - A seven lot subdivision off Nichols Street was 
approved with conditions. 

Wilmington Technology Park Preliminary Industrial Subdivision - Subdivision of 82 acres off 
Ballardvale Street, decision of the Board pending. 

Riverpark/93 Preliminary Industrial Subdivision - Subdivision of 69 acres off Concord Street, 11 
acres located in Wilmington and remainder in North Reading, decision of the Board pending. 

Tomahawk Drive Preliminary Subdivision - A ten lot subdivision off Aldrich road, decision of the 
Board pending. 

ZONING: 



In accordance with Mass. G.L. c. 40A, the Planning Board held required statutory public hearings on proposed 
amendments to the Zoning By-Law and Map and submitted formal reports and recommendations to Town Meeting 
voters as follows:

PARKING SITE PLAN REVIEW: 



Respective recommendations were made to the Town Engineer on 24 applications for Site Plan Review referred 
to the Planning Board in accordance with Section 6.5 of the Zoning By-law. 

SPECIAL STUDIES 

With the technical assistance of Planning Consultant, Kevin Hurley, the Planning Board adopted on March 20, 
1984 Planned Residential Development Rules and Regulations of the Wilmington Planning Board Acting As A 
Special Permit Granting Authority; and continued to have work sessions on finalizing the Draft Copy of the 
Amended Rules and Regulations Governing the Subdivision of Land in the Town of Wilmington that was also 
prepared by Kevin Hurley for the Board. 

The Planning Board wishes to extend their thanks to its advisor, the Town Engineer, Robert L. Higgins and 
its Coordinator, Sandra L. Murphy for their assistance throughout the year. 



Department of Public Works 



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report on 
the activities of the Wilmington Department of Public Works for the year 1984. 

HIGHWAY DIVISION 

All the regular highway maintenance work was carried out during the year such as patching streets, cleaning 
catch basins, making and installing street and warning signs, picking up trash along our roadsides, 
repairing broken curbing, cutting brush, painting and replacing guardrails, scraping back roads, etc. 

Drainage 

Drainage systems were installed, repaired or extended on the following streets: Parker Street, Adams 
Street, Woburn Street, Fay Street, King Street, Broad Street, Corey Avenue, Grand Street, Swain Road, Grove 
Avenue, Arlene Avenue, Clark Street and Harold Avenue. 

Chapter 90 Construction 

The Department of Public Works hired Engineering and Planning Consultants to prepare construction drawings 
and designs for Aldrich Road Improvements. The plans are finished and construction is to commence in 1985. 

Chapter 90 Maintenance and Hot Top Program 

Glen Road, from railroad tracks to Brattle Street, and Cypress Street was upgraded under this program. 
Chapter 81 Maintenance 

The following streets were resurfaced, all or in part, with a stone seal treatment for a total of 6 1/4 

21 



miles: Nassau Avenue, Dutton Road, Canal Street, Carter Lane, Auburn Avenue, Jacquith Road, Kendall Street, 
Edwards Road, Congress Street, Ayotte Street, Crest Avenue, Westdale Avenue, Nickerson Avenue, West Street, 
Strout Avenue, Brentwood Avenue, Morse Avenue, Cook Avenue, Washington Avenue, Railroad Avenue, Miller Road, 
Brattle Street, Sprucewood Road, Oakdale Road, Judith Road, Birchwood Road and Shady Lane Drive. 

Snow 5 Ice Removal 

The Highway Division recorded 69 1/4" of snow which is above average snowfall for this area. Snow and ice 
removal is a major and very expensive problem. 

TREE DIVISION 

The Tree Division carried out all regular maintenance such as trimming, cutting and removing trees. We had 
to remove 59 roadside trees that were dead or interfered with public safety. Hornet nests were removed upon 
request from residents. The Town Common was illuminated with a fine display of Christmas lights again this 
year. 

Dutch Elm Disease 

Samples of elm trees, believed to be diseased, were sent to the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. 
As a result, we removed 10 diseased trees. 

Insect Pest Control 

Spraying was done to try to control Gypsy Moth, Elm Leaf Beetles, Ticks, Clinch Bugs, Japanese Beetles, Pine 
Saw Flies, Eastern Tent Caterpillars and the Fall Web Worms. Spraying was also done to control the spread 
of poison ivy. 

Mosquito Control 

Mosquito control is done between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 12 midnight with a U.L.V. Generator. Larvaecide 
was administered to all trapped water holes. 



CEMETERY DIVISION 

All regular maintenance was carried out throughout the year, such as mowing grass, winter graves were loamed 
and seeded, weeding, trimming, markers were reset and foundations for monuments were poured, etc. A new 
flag pole was installed in the Veterans' lot.

PARKS 5 GROUNDS DIVISION 

All regular maintenance was carried out throughout the year such as cutting grass, trimming shrubs, marking 
ballfields for baseball, softball, field hockey and soccer, etc. 

The following are some of the highlights: 

North Intermediate School soccer field was relocated and the baseball field was reconstructed. Woburn 
Street School baseball field was reconstructed. High School track was sealed and repainted. Wildwood 
School parking lot was enlarged. Town Hall parking lot was enlarged. A new Veterans' Park, dedicated in 
memory of Robert Parent, was constructed in front of the former Town Hall. 

In concluding my report, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Police Department for keeping us 
informed during the winter months of the road conditions between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. 
weekdays, weekends and holidays; the Water Department for their help during snow storms, and all the various 
departments for their cooperation during the year. I would also like to thank the Town Manager and the 
Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. Last, but not least, to the employees of the four 
divisions of the Department of Public Works who made 1984 a very productive year, my sincere thanks and 
appreciation.

Carter Lecture Fund 



The Carter Lecture Fund Committee presented "A BALLOON SAFARI OVER AFRICA" on May 3, 1984, by Mr. Bill 
Velmure. 

Mr. Velmure showed many of his paintings of lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, etc.; and during the evening, 
he painted a picture of an elephant. The 35mm color sound-slide show projected the highlights of fourteen 
safaris, with travel by horse, foot, land-rover, camel, rubber rafts, light aircraft, and hot-air balloons. 

Mr. Velmure was well received by a very enthusiastic audience. 

The 1985 program, on May 21, is to be "THE GREAT WORLD CRUISE OF THE QUEEN ELIZABETH 2," by Mr. Doug Jones. 

Mr. Jones brings this experience to the screen in a new 90-minute, feature-length travelogue, covering 24 of 
the world's most exotic and intriguing Ports-of-Call ; and all, by way of the 67,000-ton, thirteen-story Queen 
Elizabeth 2--flagship of the Cunard Line and unquestionably the greatest ocean liner afloat. Some of the 
Ports-of-Call include such places as Barbados, Brazil, fabulous Rio, mysterious India, dazzling Singapore, 
exotic Bangkok, Hong Kong, Japan, Honolulu, Acapulco, Curacao, and the Panama Canal. This film explores the 
people and places of the world as well as behind-the-scenes of a great, majestic ship. 

This experience is as thrilling as the very world itself. It is the epitome of everyone's travel dreams. 
Join us as we "join" an international crowd on an international journey, a modern classic, as the Queen 
Elizabeth 2 sails the seas on a voyage of adventure you will never foreget. 

The Carter programs are presented free to the residents of Wilmington. 



Historical Commission 



The Historical Commission held five open houses in 1984. During one, the Wilmington Arts Council provided a 
display. 

The inventory (items donated or amassed by other means for the Tavern interior) now includes a canteen 
(c. 1814), a confederate army coat, one rod back Windsor chair (c. 1820), two rocking chairs, and several 
books. 

Painting and paperhanging was done in four rooms at the Tavern. The choice of paint and paper are intended 
to represent Colonial design. Restoration was made possible by donations from the Kiwanis-Raleigh Nelson 
Fund, the Rotary Club, and the Friends of Harnden Tavern. 

Twenty-five house markers have been prepared and will be placed on historical homes in Wilmington. 

In June the Friends of Harnden Tavern held a strawberry festival. The response was great and was considered 
to be an overall success. 

Charles and July Colombo, the Tavern apartment residents, moved out in June. 

The Commission regrets that because of work being performed in the Tavern and for lack of tenants in the 
apartment, tours were not possible during the latter half of the year. It is expected that these tours will 
be resumed in the near future. 



23 



Conservation Commission 



The Wilmington Conservation Commission meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Town Hall. 
Occasionally, there will be a special meeting, when the hearing schedule is heavy. 

In its 21st year of service to the Town the Conservation Commission's busy schedule included 25 regular 
meetings, 35 Wetland Protection hearings, and over 1,050 on-site inspections. Members have attended various 
conferences with the Department of Environmental Quality Engineering in Boston and Woburn and numerous 
on-site inspections with Department of Environmental Quality Engineering officials, Army Corp of Engineers 
and Massachusetts Environmental Protection Act officials. Much of the Commission's time is spent in Wetland 
Protection Act hearings, as well as consultations and on-site review with prospective applicants at their 
request, and as a means of explaining wetlands' consideration. 

In order to maintain communication and co-operation of projects of mutual concern, members attend many 
meetings of local boards as well as out of town. On a regional basis, participation and membership in a 
number of environmentally related organizations, such as Massachusetts Association of Conservation 
Commissions, Environmental Lobby of Massachusetts, Conservation Law Foundation, Ipswich River Watershed 
Association, Mystic River Watershed Association, Massachusetts Audubon Society, all provide valuable 
information as well as an opportunity for exchange of ideas and sources of help, which enables the 
Commission to carry out its responsibilities more effectively. 

The new Wetlands Protection Act Regulations under Mass. G.L. Chapter 131, section 40, require increased 
responsibility on the applicants' engineer to present complete and accurate site designs to satisfy all 
criteria and calculations set forth. It is the Commission's responsibility to be technically aware in 
evaluating scientific evidence presented by an applicant in order to apply the legal presumptions set forth 
in the new "regs." It is quite clear, both for the applicant and the Conservation Commission that 
improperly designed projects and projects that do not conform to the new regulations, will be "denied." 

The Commission would like to thank the interested residents of the town for their successful endeavor in the 
transfer of 35 acres of town-owned land, off Arlene Avenue, to the care and custody of the Conservation 
Commission this past year. 



Housing Authority 



The year 1984 has proved to be one of great transition and change for the Wilmington Housing Authority. The 
Authority's Chairman Kevin McMillan and Board Members Elaine Hachey, Dan Gillis, Bill Strob, and Warren 
Newhouse assumed the added responsibilities which came with the temporary vacancy of the Executive 
Director's position. Despite this, the Board, with some assistance by State Representative Miceli, followed 
through with the arduous process of obtaining new funding for construction of 32 new elderly units, eight 
family residences and the modernization of the existing elderly units and family residences. 

Executive Director, Kenneth Dorrance, appointed in August, 1984, resigned in December of 1984 to relocate to 
Georgia. Director Dorrance, during his brief tenure, considerably upgraded the maintenance of the Housing 
Authority buildings. New Director, Lillian Buckley, in conjunction with the Board Members and the Building 
and Modernization Committees, will oversee the major new construction projects scheduled to begin in 1985. 

Government procedures, such as an intense audit of Section 8 by a Federal Auditor and a new in-depth 
investigation of Housing Authority records, past and present, by our new State Housing Management 
Representative, are scheduled for the first week in January. 

This affirmation of the Wilmington Housing Authority policies and procedures, along with an almost totally 
new staff and the forthcoming construction projects, promises to make 1985 a dynamic one. The New Year 
commences with a fresh start and a renewal of the Wilmington Housing Authority's commitment to quality and 
integrity in the administration of the Town's public housing. 



24 



Council on Aging 



The year 1984 brought with it two major problems for the Council on Aging. Under the leadership of 
Chairperson Margaret McNeill, Lillian Brown, Elaine Hachey, Ann Knowlton, Winifred Geysen, Josephine Kelley, 
Ann Maclnnis, Elizabeth McLaughlin, Louise Miceli and Joseph Rexford set their goals to solving these 
problems. 1. How and where the needs of our constantly increasing number of elderly in the Town could be 
best served in the year 1985 and future years. Federal statistics estimate by the year 1990, 50% of the 
country's population will be over the age of 60. This became evident at the Council this year with 227 
residents between the age of 60-64 receiving identification cards. We realized the store front Senior Center 
could no longer accommodate the larger number of seniors. The Buzzell School was selected as an ideal 
building, being of one floor, barrier free and handicapped accessible. 2. How to transport the large number 
of handicapped seniors requesting transportation. The voters at the Annual Town Meeting in April solved our 
problems by turning the Buzzell School over to the Council on Aging and appropriated money to purchase a new 
minibus with a wheel chair lift. 

As the number of seniors increased, participation in programs and services increased. Programs and services 
are organized and administered by the coordinator for the well being of all our elderly citizens, either at 
the Senior Center or in the seniors' home. Programs made available to the elderly are: a weekly health 
clinic, therapeutic exercises, dance lessons, swimming classes, walking, bowling, golf, arts and crafts 
sessions, bi-monthly whist parties, monthly therapeutic socials, legal services, fuel assistance, homemaking, 
visiting nurse and counseling. 

The Council on Aging provides transportation for the elderly through a minibus. This year the minibus 
traveled 18,533 miles and transported 8,723 seniors to doctors, hospitals, the hot lunch site and other 
elderly related travel. 

The Hot Lunch Program delivered 10,349 hot meals to shut-in seniors, and served 4,546 hot meals to seniors at 
the West Intermediate School lunch site. 

Many other programs are organized for seniors who live alone and confined to their homes. 9,023 volunteer 
hours were given by seniors through the Friendly Visitors, Widow-to-Widow, Donated Clothes Distribution, Dial 
a Friend, Sunshine Ladies, Shopping for Food and Medicine, Medical Supplies and House Sitting (when a senior 
has to attend a wake or funeral). 

20,407 senior visits were made to the Senior Center seeking help, counseling, socialization or exercise in 
1984. 

Funding for programs and services was obtained from the voters at the Town Meeting in April and from the 
following agencies: 

$110,250 - Fuel assistance, oil burner repairs and weatherization from the Federal and State 
Fuel Assistance Program. 

145,310 - In-home care (homemakers, therapist, chore workers, day care and transportaion to Boston 
hospitals). 

4,112 - Grants from the Department of Elder Affairs. 
11,735 - Legal help from the Cambridge/Some rvi lie Elderly Legal Service. Free legal service from 
Attorney James Banda. 

10,200 - Stoneham Visiting Nurse Association (Seniors recuperating from a hospital stay, or disabled 
frail seniors. 

5,460 - State Cheese and Butter Distribution Program (estimate) 

The Council on Aging and seniors are very grateful for the help received in meeting the needs of the elderly 
in Wilmington from: Demoulas Super Market, Sweetheart Plastics Company, Diamond Crystal Salt, Employees of 
Compugraphic Corp., Woburn District Court, Yum Yum Shop, Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, Lucci's Market, Wilmington 
Police Association, Tewksbury Wilmington Elks, American Legion Post #136, The Democratic Committee, The 
students of the High School and Wildwood School, Police, Highway and Maintenance Departments, Town Crier, 
Brewsters, Sweezey Lumber, Hampshire Press, Carpenter's Unions #41 and #595, St. Dorothy's Church, 
Representative James Miceli and all the private citizens who have given their support to the older residents 
of the Town. Thanks from all of us!

Recreation Commission 



Wilmington's Recreation Department continued its attempt in 1984 to make life a bit more "FUN" for the 
people of Wilmington. 

Although our Department is relatively small, with only one full-time employee, it represents the second 
largest industry in the nation. In fact, Americans spend about 12 percent of their personal income on 
Recreation. 

The Recreation Commission and Director keep in mind the following Departmental objectives as they plan and 
conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

To provide opportunities for self expression 
To develop a sense of personal worth 

To provide activities that allow for personal achievement and accomplishment 
To provide activities that are fun and enjoyable 

To provide physical activities which are new and different, offering a certain amount 

of challenge to participants 
To teach skills in various activities that will have carry-over value in later life. 
To provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation activities in an attempt 

to meet the needs and interests of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes from a variety of sources. User fees and donations heavily supplement the town 
funded budget which was decimated by the effects of Prop 2 1/2 a few years ago. Volunteers still play a key 
role in providing two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. 

We receive much help from local clubs and organizations. Some of these invaluable contributors are: Rotary 
Club, Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, Police Association, Town Employees Association, Arts Council, July 4th 
Committee, Sons of Italy, Elks, Camp 40 Acres, Special Needs PAC, Custodial Union and Chamber of Commerce. 

Coupled with the support we get from the above is the assistance given from such civic minded businesses as: 
Sweetheart Plastics, Ski Haus, Elia's, General Electric, Compugraphic, Stelio's Massbank for Savings, 
Charles River, Rainbow Fuel, Village Pantry, Very Fine, F d, R Auto Supply, Aamco Transmissions, Abcor, 
Diamond Crystal, Lipton Tea, Heartland, Bakery Distributors, Parties and Toys, Rocco's, Avco, Church St. 
Hardware, D § D Lock, Dunkin Donuts, Town Crier and McDonalds. 

The Recreation Department is involved, in varying degrees, with many recreation oriented projects and 
groups. In this nature we serve as a quasi -consulting agency. 

We also loan equipment to groups of all types for various functions. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's Workshop, Horribles Parade, Special Kids Christmas Party, Christmas 
Shopping in NYC, Edaville Railroad Christmas Trip, Basketball League, Basketball Clinics, Rotary /Rec 
Shoot-Out, Mens Basketball, Mens Gym, Swimming Lessons, Swim-A-Cross, CPR, First Aid, Ski Trips, Ski 
Lessons, Modeling, Fashion Shows, Punt Pass 5 Kick Contest, Baton, Gymnastics, Ladies Fitness, Cinema 
Discounts, Florida Discounts, Wild Turkey Race for the Community Fund, Circus Trip to Boston Garden, Bruins 
Tickets, Fall Foliage Trip to Fryeberg Fair in Maine, Discount Shopping Spree to Kittery and Freeport, 
Maine, Playground, Tiny Tots, Special Needs Day Camp, Public Beach Supervision, Canoe Rental, Silver Lake 
Clean-Up, Crane's Beach Day, Teen Trips to Hampton Beach and Salisbury Beach, Tennis Lessons, Concerts on 
the Common, Red Sox Trips, Boston Harbor and Quincy Market Trip, Sport Clinics, Jogging Clinic, Fishing 
Derby, Canoe Clinic, Self Defense, Memorial Races, Public Skating, Co-ed Adult Volleyball, Disney on Ice 
Trip, National Baton/Twirling competition, Cross Country Ski Clinic, Record Hops and July 4th Road Race. 

Here are some other groups that offer leisure type programs: Little League, Pony League, Youth Hockey, 
T-Ball, Figure Skating Club, Mens Softball, Square Dancing, Wilmington Wheelmen, Youth Soccer, Spotlighters, 
Tennis Club, July 4th Committee, Community Schools, Council on Aging, Council for the Arts, Scouts and the 
BMX Bike Club. 

Wilmington has many fine natural water bodies where outdoor activities may be pursued. Silver Lake is our 
most important such asset offering a variety of aquatic sports from swimming, canoeing and sailing to 
skating and fishing in the winter months. The Town Park hill provides an excellent area for sledding during 
the long winter. The large number of conservation and water department lands provide an extremely healthful 
environment for man and animal alike. These protected properties allow for passive recreation such as 
nature study or bird watching. 



26 



Camp 40 Acres is used by various youth and scouting groups and is a semi-private wooded facility. The Town 
Forest, Town Park, Common with Gazebo, School Playgrounds and an abundance of tennis courts - many with 
lights are available to all. 

The outdoor recreation area at Glen Road Town Hall has been turned over to the Recreation Commission. The 
Commission in turn quickly improved the facility through a generous donation by Rotary and the invaluable 
help of volunteers and the Department of Public Works. New and modern playground equipment will be 
installed in 1985. School grounds also are being improved steadily throughout the Town. 

The Recreation Director and Commission thank those many individuals and groups who help produce a final 
recreation product which is a model to many surrounding communities. 



Public Buildings Department 



Much of the Public Buildings Department work during the first eight months of 1984 was at the new Town Hall 
on Glen Road. Offices from the former Town Hall and Town Hall Annex were moved into the Town Hall in June. 

Severe leaks in the fuel tanks at the High School resulted in removal of the tanks and cleanup of the oil 
soaked soil. New tanks are being installed in front of the High School. The new tanks are fiberglass and 
installed in a concrete vault. 

Replacement of the septic system at the Shawsheen Street School was completed prior to the opening of school 
in September. The system is working well. 

Special thanks to D.P.W. Superintendent Robert Palmer for getting the parking lot paved before school started. 

Voting machines were programmed and set up for elections in March, April, September and November. Public 
Buildings Department personnel acted as voting machine mechanics. 

Work started to convert the Buzzell School into the Senior Citizen Drop-In-Center. A new roof was installed 
by the Carpenter's Union. The chimney was repaired by Shawsheen Valley Technical High School and plumbing 
renovations were started by Shawsheen Tech students. The Public Buildings Department provided coordination, 
maintenance and delivery services. 

The Center School and Mildred Rogers School were demolished in June. 

The back porch at the Harnden Tavern was replaced. The old porch had deteriorated. 

Special thanks to the personnel of the Public Buildings Department for an outstanding job during 1984. 

Also, my thanks to those department heads and employees that provided services to the Public Buildings 
Department during 1984.

Redevelopment Authority 



During 1984, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority retained its membership with no changes. No elected 
positions were on the ballot, but C. Nicki Johnson was reappointed by Governor Michael S. Dukakis to a full 
five-year term. 

Officers of t^e Redevelopment Authority include: Jay Donovan, Chairman; Carl Backman, Vice Chairman; C. 
Nicki Johnson, Secretary; Vaughn Surprenant, Treasurer and Sidney Kaizer, Assistant Treasurer. 

During the course of the year, the last remaining lot on Jewel Drive was sold to Howland Development 
Company. Construction on this lot commenced before the end of the 1984 building season and the property is 
expected to be ready for occupancy by May, 1985. The building will house over 100,000 square feet of 
research and development and warehouse space and is expected to provide from 180 - 330 jobs. Based upon the 
estimated assessed value of the property, Howland' s taxes to the Town of Wilmington next year will be at 
least $65,000. 

Work on the Altron addition proceeded during 1984 with occupancy of the building projected by mid -March, 
1985. In this new 115,000 square foot addition, Altron plans to provide approximately 400 jobs. Upon 
completion of this expansion project, Altron' s estimated taxes to the Town of Wilmington should exceed 
$96,000. 

Members of the Redevelopment Authority discussed the options available to them now that all the parcels have 
been sold and developed. In an attempt to be helpful to the Town in securing state and federal grants and 
to utilize the powers granted under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 121B, the members of the 
Redevelopment Authority agreed to present an article at the Annual Town Meeting on April 27, 1985. The 
drafting of this article would be done in conjunction with the Town Manager, Board of Selectmen and the 
Finance Committee to ensure the full cooperation and support of the community. 

At the end of 1984, there were four businesses operating in Jewel Park employing a total of 494 people. The 
total assessed value of Jewel Park is $3,761,800 and the annual tax revenue to the Town of Wilmington totals 
$92,841. These figures are expected to increase significantly by the end of 1985 once the Altron and 
Howland properties are operating at full speed.

Council For The Arts 



For the Wilmington Council for the Arts 1984 proved to be a very interesting and productive year. Three new 
appointees were added to the Council membership bringing the total to twelve. They are Celia Cornish, 
Charles Corsaro, and Edith Michelson. 

Prize winning tole art and decorative paintings by Celia Cornish were displayed during January Open House at 
Harnden Tavern. Following in February was an exhibit of the exciting and varied art of Charlotte McCain. In 
March an exhibition of paintings by William Kinnear was presented by the Council at Memorial Library while 
Mr. Kinnear demonstrated methods of producing this colorful contemporary work. 

During 1984 the activities of the Council were supported by nearly $5,000.00 in State funds generated by the 
enormously successful Arts Lottery "Megabucks" game. With Arts Lottery Grants the Wilmington Council for the 
Arts is able to encourage and support many worthwhile Arts and Humanities projects here in Wilmington. 

Grants were successfully distributed in two funding cycles to many local and regional artists as well as 
theatre and musical groups. 

Among those receiving grants for special projects were local artists Dora Hirtle, Tina Prentiss, William 
Kinnear, Arthur Venditti, Rita Stynes Strow, Helina Minton, and Gary Spahl. 

The Council funded several innovative programs for the Children's Department at Wilmington Memorial Library 
and also provided free passes to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Grants were awarded to the Silver Lake 
Spotlighters for their Childrens' Theatre productions and to the newly organized Fine and Performing Arts 
Department at Wilmington High School. 

A summer evening performance was sponsored by the Council when the Commonwealth Woodwind Quintet played on 
the Common during August. 

Thanks to a special Council oriented grant two large colorful yellow and white striped tents made their debut 
on the Town Common during the July 4th Weekend festivities. The Council once again sponsored an all day Art 
Exhibit and Crafts Fair. Local artist Arthur Venditti demonstrated his painting technique throughout the day 
while other members of the Council worked together to present the largest and finest exhibition of local art 
work to date. Ribbons were awarded in many catagories by a panel of professional judges. 

With the fall came news of the transfer of Town Offices to the Glen Road School. Council members began to 
eye the historic Old Town Hall building with interest, it being an ideal location for an Arts Centre and 
Gallery. After several meetings with Selectmen and the Town Manager the disposition of the building is still 
undecided. 

Meanwhile current funds derived from an Arts Lottery Grant will finance a three part "Mini-Series" planned 
for the spring of 1985. These programs will be presented free of charge in the Conference Room at Memorial 
Library. 

Several scholarships are available each spring to Wilmington young people who may wish to major in the Arts 
or Music at an accredited college in the fall. 

All local artists and arts organizations in the community are urged to avail themselves of this unique Arts 
and Humanities funding opportunity by filing a Grant Application at the Town Hall and the Library. 

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Council and helping with its ongoing programs should contact 
the Town Manager or any member of the Council or Board of Selectmen. New members are always welcome.

Fourth of July Committee 



Fun on the Fourth continues to flourish, as the need for the old values of neighbors being with neighbors 
has become the dominant force in promoting the week of activities. 

The 1984 programs actually started in April of last year, when the Knights of Columbus and the Chamber of 
Commerce co-hosted a fund-raising luncheon with the Fourth of July Committee to announce the "84" programs 
and schedule plus provide a strong base for our fund-raising activities, which offset the expenses of the 
week-long activities. 

Large crowds again were a common sight as people gathered to enjoy the many meals provided by the service 
organizations, a dinner theatre, an art exhibit, concerts on the gazebo, amusements for the younger people, 
or just as spectators or participants in our athletic events. 

The highlight of the week was the large gathering for our spectacular fireworks display. 

We welcomed additional organizations that become a part of our activities—The League of Women Voters, 
Wilmington Youth Hockey, the Chamber of Commerce, and Wilmington Senior Citizens. 

The activities of the Fourth of July Committee actually ended in December, as we participated, under the 
direction of the Council of Churches, in the lighting of the Common for the Christmas holiday season. 

The Committee will begin meeting in January, on the second Tuesday of the month, in the Fourth of July 
Headquarters and invite all who wish to become part of the program to attend.

*Residential use includes small commercial users, that is, all water passing through 5/8" meters only. 



**The difference between the water pumped and the water metered, 199,905,810 gallons in 1984, represents 
water used for flushing of water mains, for fires and other hydrant uses, and water lost due to breaks and 
leakage throughout the system. 

The Water Treatment Plant supplied approximately 50% of the total water pumped. Water was supplied to the 
Town of Tewksbury on an emergency basis through September, 1984. 

Since 1979 industrial consumption has decreased and now accounts for less than 50% percent of all water used 
versus 60 percent in 1979.

per cent grant from the State for the project. 

A fee schedule was established for new water service connections; the fee is based on the size of the water 

service. 

The old diesel engine in the Brown's Crossing Station was replaced with a new electric motor. 

The granular activated carbon at the Water Treatment Plant was replaced at a cost of $35,600. 

The continuous feed of water to Tewksbury was terminated on May 1. We supplied Tewksbury on a short-term 
interim basis when their system was overtaxed. 

Our proposal to sell or lease Water Department land on Route #125 in North Wilmington was defeated at the 
Annual Town Meeting. The revenue that we would have derived was going to be used to help finance the new 
Water Treatment Plant. 

Pilot studies were conducted on the Salem Street well as the first step in treating this well and Brown's 
Crossing. Proposals were received from engineering consultants for the design of the new treatment plant for 
North Wilmington. An article will be submitted at the 1985 Annual Town Meeting to finance the proposed plant. 

The Chestnut Street well had to be cleaned and redeveloped due to clogging from iron precipitates. 

SEWER : 

Since we are part of the MDC Sewer System, the formation of the new water and sewer authority will have an 
impact on our assessment. We can expect this charge to increase. 

An infiltration/inflow study was completed. The purpose of this study was to locate any intrusions of 
groundwater or unauthorized discharge into the sewer mains. The State paid $18,324. for this study; the 
Town's share was $2,931. 

On October 18th we held a public meeting with the other Town boards to discuss future sewer extensions and to 
receive their input. Unfortunately, few town board members attended this meeting. 

We worked with a consortium of industries on Ballardvale Street to extend the sewer at no cost to the Town. 

Applications were resubmitted to the State for sewer extensions in two areas of town. If these projects are 
placed on the State's priority list, we will be eligible for State funds. 

MISCELLANEOUS : 

Water and sewer charges billed in 1983 remaining unpaid on June 30, 1984 were turned over to the Assessors 
for collection via the tax bills. This sum was $51,800. These unpaid bills are a chronic problem. The 
Board is contemplating publication of the names of those delinquent water and sewer customers. 



Veterans Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts Chapter 115 as amended with strict 
compliance to this Chapter, the rules and policies of which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy Veteran and his immediate family who have been subject to unforeseen needs. Final 
approval of benefits comes from the Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The balance of the first six months of 1984 from previous appropriation was $6,188.79, total available funds 
beginning July 1, 1984 was $12,000, total expended for aid to Veterans and their families for the entire year 
was $15,612.67. Total transferred because of unforeseen medical bills was $3,500. Encumbered $836.88 to pay 
bills waiting for authorization, leaving a balance of $143.20 remaining June 30, 1984. 

This department deals continuously with new and changing benefits and/or laws pertaining to Social Security, 
V.A. Disabilities, Pension, Compensations and G.I. Education or on the job training; plus, aiding applicants 
for S.S. I., unemployment due to strikes, shut downs and lack of work always has an impact on expenditures. 
Case load varies from time to time. 

The appropriation of 1984 and six months of 1985 was $12,000 as voted at the annual Town Meeting, a balance 
of $6,810.47 forwarded for the first six months of 1985.

Metropolitan Area Planning Council 



Wilmington is a member of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), comprising 101 communities in the 
metropolitan Boston area. The MAPC makes regional plans and policies, while also providing technical 
assistance to member communities. In 1984, Wilmington's MAPC membership assessment at 17.3 cents per 
capita, was $3,022. In return for this annual assessment, MAPC provided the following: 

1. Development of regional plans, such as the Overall Economic Development Program and the 
Transportation Improvement Program, which were required to maintain eligibility for federal funds 
in these areas. 

2. Conduct a major traffic study with a final report and recommendations presented to the Board of 
Selectmen for implementation. 

3. Reviewed two development proposals with estimated construction costs of $55 million, as well as 
five industrial Revenue Bond proposals totaling $14.66 million. 

4. Provided zoning reviews and comments to assist communities in identifying and modifying development 
projects to minimize adverse impacts and to promote cost effectiveness. 

5. Held several workshops covering economic development, street standards and local zoning issues and 
developed numerous publications, such as the Massachusetts Small Cities Handbook and the Community 
Profile Series , which directly benefit the Town of Wilmington. 

It has been a pleasure serving as the MAPC Representative for the Town of Wilmington.

Library Trustees 



The first year of Proposition 2 1/2 resulted in a severe cutback in library funds. Your trustees were 
forced to reduce the staff and cut back the hours the library was open to serve the public. Since that time 
increased State Aid to the town has enabled other departments to have their budget increased remarkably even 
when compared to the pre -proposition 2 1/2 years. Not so with the library, we are still operating with the 
reduced staff and open less hours. 

The trustees feel that the people of Wilmington deserve a library open for their convenience with an 
adequate staff able to serve all the people from pre-school through their senior years. 

The untimely death of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Richard Barry leaves the trustees saddened both 
personally and professionally. He is truly missed 



Library Director 



The annual report of the Memorial Library with its compilation of statistics for FY '83 -'84 is submitted 
herewith: 

Highlights in the Children's department were the highly successful "Sunburst Summer" program with July 
witnessing the highest circulation ever recorded for the department; the start of story hours for three year 
olds; and, a grant by the Wilmington Arts Council for "ABC - Art, Books and Children" which provided funds 
for passes to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and for visits from children's book artist. The work and 
dedication of Mrs. Sarah Rueter and Miss Susan MacDonald is acknowledged and is greatly appreciated. 

A procedural manual was prepared by Christina Stewart for the Reference and Adult Services department prior 
to her maternity leave in February of 1984. "Tina" resigned her full-time position in August, and returned 
part-time in October. David Rush assumed the position of Reference and Adult Services Librarian as of 
November 1, 1984. Miss Cecile Hastie, Mrs. Christine Dehoff, and Mr. Rush provided reference and adult 
services on a part-time basis during the duration of Mrs. Stewart's leave. The cooperation of these 
individuals during this interim period is also acknowledged and appreciated. 

Mrs. Glenna Barnes resigned her position in the Technical Services department, and Mrs. Doris Carbone was 
appointed her replacement in May of 1984. Mrs. Barbara White and Mrs. Bea Yankowski continue to serve. The 
entire staff is to be commended for their willingness and dedication during this time, and especially during 
various transitional periods. 

Budgetary restraints continue to impact. Connecting with the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium is eagerly 
anticipated, with its enhancement of patron services. The Memorial Library hopes to join a computer-based 
network of public libraries from thirteen (13) neighboring cities and towns; and, to gain access to an 
automated resource sharing network; and, to lay the foundation for public access catalogs, and eventual 
networking with the Wilmington schools; and, to automate circulation control, reserve requests and other 
appropriate procedures. 

The Student Council of the North Intermediate School reactivated the fund which provides passes to the 
Museum of Science. Funds from the 4th District Court of Eastern Middlesex provided funds for career 
materials. The West Intermediate Industrial Arts department constructed and donated a case for holding free 
material dealing with drugs and alcohol. Significant donations were received in the memory of Richard V. 
Barry, George Boylen, Sr., and E. Matthew Wall ent, Jr. 

The services and contributions of Richard Barry, who served as Chairman of the Board of Library Trustees 
from 1981 until his death in 1984, will be missed. The service of former Chairman, E. Hayward Bliss, and 
Mr. Barry have been recognized by the planting of two memorial trees with suitable markers in the front of 
the Library. 

54 



1984 internally in many ways proved to be difficult. However, concepts of service and access continued to 
be the year's major themes. 1985, hopefully, will see the realization of three year's effort with the 
Memorial Library's membership and participation in the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium .

School Committee 



The School Committee of the Town of Wilmington herewith presents its report for the year 1984. The 
membership of the Committee is as follows: 

Bridget T. Zukas, Chairperson 
Anthony Accardi, Jr., Vice Chairman 
John D. Brooks, Secretary 
Robert G. Peterson 
Philip A. Fenton, Sr. 
Linda T. McMenimen 

The School Committee has had an active year in fostering the development of policies and regulations in the 
areas of personnel selection, a student code of discipline, graduation requirements, the alcohol and drug 
abuse policy and curriculum. The Drug/Alcohol Abuse Policy Task Force, chaired by Robert G. Peterson, has 
been instituted and became a statewide model for other towns to emulate. 

The Committee is pleased to report that: SAT scores are on the rise in Wilmington; students are scoring 
above the national norm in the standardized testing program in Reading and on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills; 
a mandatory substance abuse curriculum has been implemented in the intermediate grade schools; and a semester 
course in Keyboarding in grade 7, when combined with the one semester grade 8 Computer Literacy program, 
completes a sequential computer education program for the intermediate schools. This is just a partial list 
of the many accomplishments in 1984 in both policy development and program approvals/implementation. 

The School Committee wishes to thank all the town's people who overwhelmingly voted to exempt the $6.5 
million bond issue from the limits of Proposition 2 1/2 which begins addressing the need for an up-to-date 
modern high school for the children of Wilmington. 

STAFF RECRUITMENT 

The major position filled in 1984 was the selection of Paul T. Fleming as Principal of Wilmington High 
School. Mr. Fleming comes to Wilmington with significant teaching, curriculum leadership, and administrative 
experience. 

COLLECTIVE BARGAINING 

The Committee completed negotiations for a multi-year contract with the town's building administrators, 
secretaries, nurses, and cafeteria employees. 

RETIREMENTS 

The following personnel have served the Wilmington Schools/Community with success: 

Mary Bui ley 
Linda Jackson 
Oliver Aruda 

The Committee thanks each of these persons for their service in the school system and wishes them success in 
their retirements. 

George Hesse, former teacher and principal for the Wilmington School System, passed away following his 
retirement from Wilmington. His many years of service and commitment to children is much appreciated by this 
Committee. 

The School Committee extends their appreciation to Linda T. McMenimen who served as a School Committee 
member, twice Chairperson, and numerous other roles, for nine years for her active public service to the 
children of Wilmington. 

The School Committee thanks all of the parents, professional staff, non certified staff and other town 
personnel who have contributed to a successful 1984.

Superintendent of Schools 



I am pleased to submit the Annual Report of the activities of the Wilmington Public Schools for the year 

1984. A review of the year's activities brings out the following highlights: 

Basic Skills Improvement Program 

In the spring of 1984 students in grades 3 and 6 were administered the Iowa Test of Basic Skills to assess 
their basic skills in reading, mathematics, and language arts, provide diagnostic information, and to 
identify students not achieving minimal competency levels. In grade 8 students were assessed in reading, 
mathematics and writing to insure that minimal competency levels were achieved. In grades 3, 5 and 7 a 
listening skills assessment was undertaken to identify students needing improvement in this area. Skills in 
capitalization, punctuation, grammar and usage were also tested in grades 3, 6, and 8 as part of the total 
testing program. Students not achieving minimal competency in one or all of the areas tested are provided 
with remediation programs until competency can be demonstrated. 

Special Education 

The Special Education Department, along with the English, Mathematics and Reading Departments at Wilmington 
High School, have jointly cooperated in the planning, development and operation of a new alternative 
curriculum program at Wilmington High School. The intent of the Alternative Curriculum Program is to 
implement the Chapter 766 regulation which states "prior to the referral of a child for a Chapter 766 
evaluation, all efforts shall be made to meet such child's needs within the context of the services which are 
part of the regular education program". The new Alternative Curriculum Program significantly enhances the 
capacity of the English, Mathematics and Reading Departments to provide a more individualized instruction for 
students who have been thus far unable to meet the academic requirements of the high school program and are 
consequently in the high risk of failure and non-promotion. Additionally, some special needs students are 
enrolled in this regular education alternative program and as a result are being provided less services from 
the special education program. The Alternative Curriculum Program is directly under the supervision of the 
high school principal. 

The Special Education Department also worked with the Mathematics, Social Studies and English Departments to 
offer a workshop to high school teachers on the "role of a teacher in promoting positive self-esteem". 

Performing and Fine Arts Department 

The Performing and Fine Arts Department has expanded its offerings at the high school level with the addition 
of theatre arts, and public speaking classes. The first production will be Arsenic and Old Lace in March, 

1985. The band and chorus have performed for civic groups and businesses. Band parents continue to provide 
support for our fine band and jazz ensemble. A travelling student art exhibit has been made available to 
local businesses and has met with much success. 

Grants have been awarded to the department to allow a wide variety of guest artists to perform for and work 
with students systemwide, particularly in integrated arts projects. The number of artists in the schools has 
increased significantly. Our staff also work as resident artists systemwide to enrich the arts curriculum. 

All fourth, fifth, and sixth graders systemwide attended the Boston Symphony Orchestra's Youth Concerts and 
all third graders attended The Nutcracker Ballet. Students will also go to the Museum of Fine Arts in 
Boston. Students continue to enter and do well in art and music competitions. 

This excellent staff continues to provide high quality services to students in the classroom, through winter 
and spring concerts and art exhibits, and through special integrated arts projects both in individual 
buildings and on a systemwide level. 

Reading Department 

Wilmington's third annual Summer Reading Program was organized through the cooperative efforts of the 
Wilmington Reading Department and the Wilmington Memorial Library. The major objectives of the program were 
to encourage summer reading and visits to the public library. 

This third annual Summer Reading Program was entitled "A Sunburst of Summer Reading", and as the name 
implies, its theme was the sun and the many things associated with it. Every elementary school child was 
given a "sun dollar" to be returned to the library where it could be spent to "purchase" a Sunburst Summer 
Reading kit. The kit consisted of a Sunburst Reading Folder for logging library visits and recording books 
read during the summer, a sunflower seed for planting at home, a sheet of entry blanks for weekly drawings, 
and a Sunburst Summer bookmark. Special summer activity sheets were distributed at the library each week. 
Mrs. Rueter, the Children's Librarian, conducted story hours and other special sunburst activities throughout 
the summer. 



57 



In September, a specal "Sunburst Reading Celebration" was held at each elementary school. Sunburst reading 
activity booklets were distributed to each child for completion during Sunburst Week. Sunburst songs and 
sunburst art projects were conducted. A special sunburst dessert was provided in each school cafeteria. 
Certificates of participation and special bookmarks were distributed and sunburst readers of the week were 
named. All students were given an opportunity to participate. 

Sample Unusual New Books! Uncover Remarkable Stories Today! was the Sunburst slogan for Wilmington children. 

Reading is a daily, year-round activity and circulation of books at the library was reported to be the 
greatest yet! 

In response to the many requests for ideas and activities for helping children at home a Reading/Language 
Arts Activities Newsletter was distributed monthly to all students in grades K-6. A blank calendar was 
provided in order that children could log the activities they completed. Reading silently for 10-20 minutes 
nightly, reading orally to a family member for 10-20 minutes nightly, and being read to nightly were three 
activities stressed as being extremely enjoyable and beneficial for all involved. 

English Department 

The English Department, under the leadership of Dr. David Moriarty has continued its dedication for 
excellence in teaching and curriculum renewal. 

A new Communications Skills III course has been implemented for all grade eleven students. A new SAT Review 
course has been developed to better prepare students for the College Board Exams. In addition, SAT type 
materials have been introduced in all appropriate grades and levels. 

Specific reading is now a standardized requirement for all grades and levels of ability. A stronger emphasis 
upon writing for all students has been implemented at all grade levels. 

Teachers in the English Department have all had the opportunity to receive inservice education in the 
teaching of writing conducted by Dr. Moriarty in 1984. 

Career and Job Development 

Career Development entered its second year of operation in 1984. The major goal is to make it possible for 
all learning in the Wilmington schools to emphasize the relationship between what is learned in class and its 
application in the world of work. 

Since allowing young people to see the jobs and technology available to them in this town involves good 
communication with business and industry, a Business-Education Action Council was established for 
Wilmington. This is a group of activist representatives from all the major companies in town who meet 
bi-monthly to find ways to infuse real -world information and techniques into education. 

Meanwhile, our existing programs for career information include parent and student volunteers running the 
computerized Guidance Information service about careers and colleges; taking Juniors to the Regional Career 
Fair at University of Lowell, bringing industry personnel to do workshops on attitude, behavior, and needed 
skills for students in preparation for our Mock Interview Program. 

In 1984 many career programs have been introduced in the intermediate schools and a Career Center in both the 
West and North Intermediate Schools with computer software to match student interests with job 
classifications has been established. This is most important to students who must decide what courses to 
take in high school so they realize that the subjects they are studying will be meaningful in terms of what 
they plan to do after graduation. The choice is not premature as students need not identify a particular job 
or career, only interests, aptitudes and a general direction of cluster of careers that suits the person's 
talents. 

We are continuing to offer employee training to businesses so that our teachers can have extra income and 
industry can save money for computer training of their personnel over what industrial vendors charge. This 
in turn helps to keep our association with industry in a very positive light and causes them to be most 
willing to help us with projects of all kinds. Two special gifts were given by General Electric (a $500 
donation to career exploration in the three secondary schools) and from our pioneer in Career Development, 
Olin Corporation, who gave the bulk of funds needed to purchase VCRs for the Social Studies Department of the 
three schools to replace badly outdated equipment. 

Physical Education and Athletics 

The Physical Education Department continued to serve all students (K-12) as well as providing an adaptive 
program for students with special needs. 

The program now sponsors a physical education "Mile Club" to encourage physical fitness in grades 5 through 8. 

A new Substance Abuse program was initiated in Grades 7-8, with the cooperation of the Science Department. 
This program emphasized the importance of drug-alcohol education.

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding achievement in physical education.

The 1984 ice hockey team, coached by Bill Cullen won their second straight Merrimack Valley Conference 
Championship and battled their way to Boston Garden and the Division II finals. 

The 1984 golf team, coached by John Piantedosi, won the Merrimack Valley Conference Division II Championship. 

The 1984 field hockey team, coached by Jan Cassidy, went to the Divis ion II North State finals. Captain 
Janet Crowley was selected to the Boston Herald All -Scholastic Field Hockey Team. 

Megan Donnelly (Class of 1982), a junior at the University of Massachusetts, was named to the All -American 
Field Hockey First Team for the third consecutive year. 

Mary McNaughton (Class of 1983), a sophomore at Holy Cross was named to the Ail-American Cross-Country Team 
for the second straight year. 

Business Education Department 

The eleventh Annual State Leadership Conference of the Massachusetts Office Education Association was held 
March 11-13, 1984, at the Colonial Hilton Hotel in Lynnfield, Massachusetts. 

Fourteen Wilmington High School students joined several hundred other Massachusetts secondary students at 
the conference. Through various competitive events, workshops, guest speakers and social events, our 
students were able to meet new challenges and make new friends. 

The competitive aspect of OEA maximizes the student's subject knowledge, spirit of competition, leadership 
ability, human relations knowledge; gives the opportunity to practice fellowship, confidence and 
socialization; and rewards satisfaction. 



59 



Of the fourteen Wilmington High School students in attendance at the conference, seven received recognition 

awards for excellence: 



Extemporaneous Verbal I Maura McDonald 

Gail Lombard 

Job Interview I LoriAnn Morin 

Proofreading Kimberly Mytych 

Receptionist Scott Anderson 

Records Management William Odium 

Typing II Christine Enos 



Wilmington High School student members Steven Dionne, Lisa Elmstrom, Ellen Gentile, Darrin Mather, Bonnie 
MacEachern, Patricia Razigno, and Kathy Shelley also competed in various cluster and non-cluster events. 

The Career and Occupational Education Department has been able to obtain $13,480 from a federally funded 
program called Accounting and Computing. The program assists accounting students in developing computer 
skills that will be practical and usable in the marketplace. The money allowed us to equip a classroom with 
computers, primarily for the use of accounting students. Constant availability and access to a computer is 
providing our students with confidence in the use and understanding of a hands-on automated accounting 
system. 

Foreign Language Department 

A record breaking eighty-eight percent of all seventh grade students are enrolled in either an exploratory 
French course or an exploratory Spanish course. Depending on their performance in an exploratory course, 
students are able to take up to five full years of Honors French or of Honors Spanish. The enthusiasm and 
interest in foreign languages that are fostered by our intermediate school courses stay with many students 
into their high school years. According to a national survey, only ten percent of high school students 
continue studying a foreign language after their second year of foreign language study. Our percentage in 
Wilmington has always been dramatically higher. This past year, seventy-nine percent of second year 
students went into a level three course. Sixty-eight percent of third year students went into a level four 
course. Sixty-nine percent of fourth year students went into a level five course. 

In January, Mr. Robert Young and his Spanish students at the North Intermediate hosted LaTuna, a famous 
group of college aged student minstrels from Spain who tour the United States each year. More then three 
hundred parents, friends, and students enjoyed the outstanding musical performance. 

In April, Miss Louise Bocchino, Miss Carmelina Capozzi, and Miss Lita Fernandes accompanied nineteen high 
school students and three parents to Europe. They spent a most enjoyable and rewarding ten days visiting 
France and Spain. During the summer four Wilmington foreign language teachers took lengthy trips to Europe 
in order to study and live with families. 

In May, all foreign language teachers attended a foreign language computer workshop presented by Mr. Robert 
Young. As a result of the information given and the hands-on training, teachers at the North, West, and the 
High School are beginning to use computer programs and computer-made worksheets with their classes. 

More than two hundred students are members of the high school foreign language club. Under the direction of 
Miss Jean Fitzgerald and Miss Lita Fernandes, the club has been involved in many exciting activities—trips 
to French restaurants, Spanish restaurants, museums, movies, Spanish and French rock concerts, parties 
(including one to Deming Way to sing Christmas carols to the elderly), a French breakfast, a Spanish 
breakfast, a flamenco dance assembly, fund raising events, a Mexican fiesta, a four day trip to Canada, and 
a twenty-two hour day trip to New York City. 

Mathematics Department 

During 1984, the Mathematics Department added six new courses to the curriculum at Wilmington High School. 
Among the new offerings were a second level of intermediate algebra, a senior trigonometry course, and a 
second advanced placement calculus course. Under the leadership of Benjamin N. Levy, Chairman of the 
Mathematics Department, Wilmington now offers an appropriate mathematics course for every student who wishes 
to take one, and a new course of studies that extends from grade 7 through grade 12. There was also a 50% 
increase in the number of computer programming classes, and the Pascal computer language joined Basic and 
Fortran in the curriculum. The intermediate mathematics teachers made a determined effort to improve 
student placement in courses, particularly in the transition from grade 6 and from grade 8. 

The Mathematics Department purchased a network of IBM computers at the high school and a network of Acorn 
computers for each intermediate school. When the high school renovation is completed, every classroom will 
be connected to the network and computers may be moved easily around the building to enhance instruction in 
many academic areas. By establishing the network, which permits independent computers to share expensive 
peripherals like printers and disk storage, Mr. Levy has given Wilmington a computer facility that can grow 
with its instructional program.

Teacher of the Year Nominee 



Mr. Frank Birmingham, who resides on Carson Avenue, Wilmington, was nominated by Principal, Dr. Joseph J. 
Connelly, and the Superintendent of Schools as Wilmington's Teacher of the Year. Mr. Birmingham had to 
submit documentation of his background, teaching philosophy, and contributions to this school /community to 
the Massachusetts Sta^e Department of Education. Mr. Birmingham was selected from all applicants throughout 
Massachusetts as one of three finalists for the official State Teacher of the Year. Frank Birmingham's 
selection and success brings honor to both himself and the Wilmington School Community. 

In conclusion I would like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation to the School Committee, 
administrators, teachers, parents and students who contributed their efforts to the Wilmington Public 
Schools during the 1984 school year. A special note of thanks to the many town departments that cooperated 
with the school system in 1984.

Shawsheen Tech as a regional vocational /technical school serves five towns which include Bedford, Billerica, 
Burlington, Tewksbury, and Wilmington. The school is housed in a modern building located in Billerica. The 
building has 260,000 square feet and includes 22 skill training programs, 40 classrooms, a gymnasium, 
swimming pool as well as athletic facilities for a number of different sports. 

The prime concern of those at Shawsheen Tech is to train students for gainful employment. Since 80% of the 
jobs in today's world of work do not require a college education the vocational and technical training 
offered at Shawsheen Tech results in just about all of the graduates getting jobs in their area of training 
and receiving excellent pay. 

The school operates in accordance with the guidelines established by the Department of Education, Division 
of Occupation Training which requires that 50% of the time be spent in academic classrooms and the remainder 
in a shop area. Efforts have been made to parallel the academic training at Shawsheen Tech with the 
offerings at the local high schools so that any situation arising that require students to transfer from one 
school to the other the students will be able to carry on with very little adjustment necessary. 

Because of the large number of diversified industry within the 128 area not only are all our graduates 
placed, but we have had a situation where there are job openings in culinary, business tech, electrical, 
machine shop, health services and many other areas where there are not sufficient graduates to fill all the 
job vacancies. 



All Shawsheen Tech graduates wishing to go to work upon graduation were placed in positions relating to 
their field of training. We feel this reflects our excellent placement record and enhances the reputation 
of our school by providing the type of training that both industry and business is expecting. 

GRADUATION - CLASS OF '84 

Commencement exercises were held in June at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington. This year saw the 
largest class ever to graduate from Shawsheen Tech, numbering 428. It is estimated some 4,500 people 
attended this year's ceremony. Sixty-one of the graduates went on to higher education to such schools as 
Northeastern University, University of Lowell, Salem State College, University of Maine, Middlesex Community 
College. 

BUILDING PROGRAM 

Part of the training for our students is the building of a residential house where all the building trades 
cooperate in this event. In 1984, a house was completed which was located on Boutwell Street in 
Wilmington. The current project was started in September and is a garrison type house which is being built 
in Burlington. In addition, a project was started to remodel the Buzzell School in Wilmington which will be 
used by the senior citizens of that town. 



Shawsheen Tech has a full range of sports, and the school year of 83/84 has seen students excel in a number 
of areas. In Hockey their record was 21-0-1, and the team went ahead to win the State Championship in 



PLACEMENT 



SPORTS 



62 



Hockey in Division 3. Basketball's record was 21-2 placing first in their division. In addition, honor was 
received by the girls' Softball team, girls' cheerleaders, boys' swim team, soccer team and the league 
championship tennis team. 

BUDGET 

The budget for the 1984/85 school year was finalized on January 24 representing a 1.9% increase over our 
budget of the previus year. In the preliminary discussions on the budget for the 1985/86 school year, the 
School Committee indicated that they would favor a 5% increase of the budget. 

SUMMER SCHOOL 

In order to assist students in the five towns, our facility is offered for makeup classes. This past summer 
412 students attended 19 different classes in order to fulfill the requirements of their local high school 
as well as taking courses for enrichment. This has been a very effective and efficient operation since in 
many cases local high schools may require only a handful of students to take subjects such as algebva or 
English but by combining with students from the other towns there would be enough students to make it 
feasible to run a class. 

ADULT EVENING EDUCATION 

In October of 1984, the Adult Evening Education program was offered and continues to be extremely popular. 
Some 600 adults attended 39 programs. Two new courses were offered Microprocessing Electronics and 
Introduction to Home computers. 

ENROLLMENT STATISTICS 

In accordance with the agreement between the five towns, the assessment of costs is based on the percentage 
of enrollment. The enrollment as of October 1, 1984 is as follows: 

TOWN No. of Students Percent Enrollment 

Bedford 61 3. 85 

Billerica 614 38.76 

Burlington 188 11.87 

Tewksbury 446 28.16 

Wilmington 275 17.36 

Total Enrollment - 10/1/84 1,584 100 

SIGNIFICANT EVENT 

This past year saw the final payment on the bond issue so that the entire facility is now free of any 
financial encumbrances. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Again this past year saw a number of our students involved in school activities such as the Vocational 
Industrial Clubs of America (VICA), the annual Red Cross Blood Drive, Toys for Tots as well as the school 
newspaper and annual school play. 

REGIONAL SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

Meetings of the regional school committee are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. The 
public is invited to participate.

Clerk, subject to conditions and restrictions contained in a certain trust agreement dated May 
21, 1984 between the owner of said land, Bernard J. Ristuccia , and the Wilmington Board of 
Selectmen, which provides for the construction of an ice rink; all of which is incorporated 
herein by reference. 

s/Albert F. Reidy, Jr. 

The motion being the same as the main article with the exception of Mr. Ristuccias' name in full and the 
adding of the date, and the elimination of the words "No other use". 

Finance Committee "No recommendation pending Planning Board Public Hearing. Will caucus before Special Town 
Meeting." Recommends it be tabled pending finalization of legal arrangements and clarification of financial 
24rangements and other open items. A 2/3rds vote to table being needed, the recommendation lost. 

Planning Board recommended approval with the stipulation that traffic control lights be installed at the 
Richmond Street/Main street intersection prior to occupancy of the proposed building. In addition, the 
Planning Board recommends that the entrance to Route 38 for AMC, Mancini's, Wilmington Transmission and 
McNammara Tire be closed and that access to these buildings be provided by way of a roadway easement running 
parallel to Main Street and that the common entrance to all five properties be established directly opposite 
the Fred F. Cain Bridge. 

At this point Al Reidy introduced Mr Joe Ristuccia son of Bernard to speak on the proposal made by his 
father and of the letter of committment offered by them as follows; 

Wilmington Arena Authority and 
Wilmington Board of Selectmen 

Dear Sirs: 

This letter serves as our committment to construct at our expense an Ice Hockey Rink in the Town of 
Wilmington at Main Street, (Parcel 178 on Assessors* Map 44). Said property is owned by Bernard J. 
Ristuccia. Said Committment is dependent upon the rezoning to General Business of the entire parcel of land 
as described in Article 1 of the Special Town Meeting of May 21,. 1984 as amended (Attached). Construction 
is dependent upon receiving all necessary zoning changes, final town board approvals, and final permits for 
completion and operation of the facility by September 30, 1984. The rink will be built in accordance with 
plans and designes reviewed by the Wilmington Arena Authority and approved by me. The rink is to be 
operated by the Wilmington Arena Authority, a non-profit corporation in the State of Massachusetts. The 
Wilmington Arena Authority will operate the rink under a net, net lease. The owners do not intend to file 
tax-free status, as all taxes will be paid by the operator under the terms of the lease. 

s/ Bernard J. Ristuccia 

Attachment I 

As written Article 1, is to be amended as follows: 

The attachment was the same as the amendments that were made in the main motion made by Albert Reidy. 

After much discussion and many proposals that were not made in forms of motions James Banda rose from the 
back of the room to move the question. The moderator told the body what the meant and the people still 
voted to move the motion unanimously giving the meeting another ten minutes of discussion. With this Al 
Reidy summed up and thanked the voters of Wilmington for their interest and attendance. At 9:35 a standing 
vote was taken with 2/3rds being needed, the vote was Yes 285 No 69 So voted: 

The moderator then asked for a motion to adjourn which was made from the Finance Committee side and seconded 
by a Selectman. So voted at 9:40 P.M. with the final count of 375 voters of Wilmington in attendance.

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how 
the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could 
have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually 
in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, 
who strives valiently, who errs and comes up short again and 
again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, 
and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in 
the end the triumphs of high achievement, and who at worse, 
if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his 
place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know 
neither defeat nor victory. 

Theodore Roosevelt
